Asian eyelid surgery blepharoplasty before and after

Asians often have monolids, where the upper eyelid lacks a crease. Due to its ability to improve the appearance of the eyes and give them a more renewed and refreshed appearance, this transformative surgery has become more and more popular around the world. Dallas board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Solomon Azouz offers eyelid surgery to help improve the appearance of the upper eyelid and create a more noticeable crease on the eyelid, which will make the eyes appear bigger and brighter.

What is Asian Eyelid Surgery?

Asian eyelid surgery, sometimes referred to as Asian blepharoplasty or double eyelid surgery, creates or improves an upper eyelid crease for those who have a less defined eyelid structure or a monolid. The goal of the surgery is to help define the upper eyelid crease and will also allow more opportunity for eyeshadow and eyeliner designs for those who wear makeup. During a consultation, Dr. Azouz will determine the appropriate height from your lash line to the new crease, based on your desired outcome and preexisting eye characteristics.

Am I a Candidate for Asian Eyelid Surgery?

Candidates for Asian eyelid surgery present with one or more of the following:

  • Dissatisfaction with the shape of the eye
  • Draping eyelid that makes the eyes appear partly closed
  • Puffy eyes/excess fatty tissue
  • Inward-folding eyelids, causing lashes to brush the cornea
  • A desire for simpler makeup application
  • Looking to restore a more youthful appearance

Asian Eyelid Surgery

With an Asian blepharoplasty, an eyelid crease is made, resulting in extra eyelid space. The reshaped eyes appear larger and more almond-shaped. Where the new eyelid crease will be, a fine incision will be made, and if necessary, excess fat and skin will be removed. The incision is sutured and usually invisible, though it may be apparent depending on its length.

Anesthesia for Asian Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Azouz uses an innovative approach to anesthesia that combines sedation with local anesthesia. This helps keep the patient comfortable during surgery and also controls pain during and after the procedure.

Risks of Asian Eyelid Surgery

Although Asian eyelid surgery is generally considered safe, there are some inherent dangers associated with the technique, such as

  • Bleeding and bruising
  • Infection
  • Swelling and discomfort
  • Temporary numbness or changes in sensation
  • Asymmetry

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz uses meticulous techniques to minimize risks and carefully monitors patients after surgery for the most optimal natural results.

Asian Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Asian eyelid surgery recovery times vary from patient to patient but usually include:

  • Swelling and bruising that gradually subside over several weeks
  • Temporary discomfort or tightness around the eyes

Heavy lifting and vigorous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. Most patients can resume their regular activities in 1-2 weeks after eyelid surgery. Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Azouz will provide personalized recommendations after surgery as he monitors your progress.

Combination of Asian Eyelid Surgery with Other Plastic Surgeries

​​Combining Asian eyelid surgery with a brow lift provides the youngest, wide-awake results while keeping a natural appearance. Your skin sags onto your eyebrows as a result of the muscles in your forehead relaxing with age. This downward pressure can make your lids appear heavy or droopy and create horizontal lines across your forehead. Lifting the brow eliminates the wrinkles and repositions the eyebrows slightly higher up. Because the entire top face is rejuvenated, the two treatments work best when done concurrently.

Asian Eyelid Surgery Cost

Numerous factors, including the length of the procedure, the anesthesiologist’s and surgeon’s fees, and the facility fees, affect how much Asian eyelid surgery costs. Dr. Azouz will provide a cost estimate and go over payment options following a consultation.
